One of my reading goals this year is to finish Paul F. Wilson's "Adversary Cycle", so I downloaded the ones that I hadn't yet read.

Reborn, Legacies, The Touch, Hosts and The Peabody - Ozymandias Travelling Circus and Oddity Emporium

I also downloaded John Skalzi's Old Man's War for a pound. (It's been on my to buy list for a while.)

A battered edition of Prescott's Conquest of Peru, published around the turn of the previous century by Lippincott. The front board of the first volume has come off. But the price was $7.88 postpaid for both books, and the text blocks are in good shape. I look forward to reading these, having been so interested in Prescott's Mexican history. The cat, once again, is Tess.

Here's Umar with the two Everyman's Library volumes of the Paston Letters. There are, undoubtedly, more scholarly editions of the Letters available, but I like the old EL books and at $11.80 postage included they were affordable. Umar's an old contrary cat here making her Chrons debut.

@Extollager I don't know if it's your usual practice to photograph all your books with cats (I should pay more attention!) but I love it and I hope you continue to do so! That is a beautiful shot of a beautiful cat!
My impression has always been that Extollager's cats tend to sneak partially into shot inadvertently, as opposed to necessarily being encouraged to take part - but I'm sure Extollager can provide the precise circumstances. Our family cat is above such trivialities as 'paying attention to humans' and would be unlikely to ever sneak into shot - more's the pity, as I like the juxtaposition too.

Umar is actually being gently held in place in her picture. I'll have to do the same with our boarder cat, Will, sometime.

Here's Will with a book I got some weeks ago. I've been getting better acquainted with Browne's writing. It would be nice to hear something from the Religio Medici or Urn Buriall read by a really good reader.
